Do you know how the current codebase break out in terms of JVM version?
Which code is currently needed support 1.3 environments?

How would you handle interfaces or base classes that are common to more than
one JVM version if the descendent class is specific to, say, 1.3? Would you
duplicate the base classes in each jar?
